ADCET Newsletter: September 2022

Griffith University is a leader in Higher Education Supports for Deaf and hard of hearing students and its Deaf Student Support Program has run for over 37 years. Our next webinar: Equity, Access, Inclusion and Success - Supporting Deaf and hard of hearing staff and students will delve into the program and Griffith University will share their best practice strategies.

A shift toward buying ICT products and services that all staff and students can use is an extremely positive step that universities can take to reduce barriers encountered by people with disability. ADCET and the NDCO Program, in partnership with an expert advisory panel, have developed an implementation guide that will provide universities with practical guidance about procuring ICT products and services with accessibility as an essential criterion. Join us for the official launch of this resource.

Our last webinar: Tertiary Providers - How JobAccess can help you better support employees with disability, aimed to demystify the Employment Assistance Fund (EAF) and how it can be used to support staff with disability. Make sure you catch up on the recording if you couldn't make it!

Listen to the second ADCET podcast based on our popular past webinars: Managing complex and challenging mental health situations, to find out how to approach students whose mental health is so disruptive that they are unable to participate in class. The only thing better than one podcast, is two! The eighth episode of our 12@12 podcast series: Using Strengths, the Goldilocks Way is live! Consider how to draw on the right character strength, in just the right amount at just the right time.

Finally, in our most recent Darren's UpdATes, Assistive Technology Project Officer Darren Britten provides information about browser tools (extensions) that may assist anyone when studying online. Bookings are also available for the last ADCET Assist sessions for the year, so make an appointment to have your burning questions about accessibility, teaching and assistive technology answered.
